It is with saddened hearts that we, the family of Bingy Axworthy announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother on Monday, October 4, 2021, at the Cove Guest Home in Sydney.
Bingy Axworthy was born on March 19, 1951, in Sydney, and was the son of the late Frank and Ella Axworthy. Besides his parents he is predeceased by his sister, Loretta.
Almost everyone who knew him called him Bingy, but still some called him Frank. No matter the name used, Bingy was the most kind and loving person you could ever meet. He was always there for everyone and did whatever he could for anyone. All through his sickness, he still had his sense of humour and you never knew what was going to come out of him.
Bingy was an employee of the Cape Breton Post for 38 years but also did body work and painted cars. He had the greatest passion for antique cars, especially his 73 Dodge Dart.
Bingy is survived by his loving and dedicated wife of 49 years, June; son, Brad; grandchildren, Gillian and Cody whom he loved dearly; his sweet little Simba; brothers, Gerald (Anita), Gary (Gail), Lenny, Glenn (Michelle), Duane (Shelly) and Troy (Susan); sisters, Betty, Beverly (Kevin), Dorothy (Fred), Debbie (Cecil) and Margie (John); as well as many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff on Spanish Bay at the Cove who made life easy for Bingy to be away from his home and family. The staff were like family who couldn’t do enough for him. His last days of life could not have been any more loving and peaceful, thanks to the staff at the Cove.
Cremation has taken place and to honor Bingy’s wishes there will be no visitation or service.
Donations in memory of Bingy may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
We would ike to offer you and your family our deepest and most sincere condolences and may the soul of Bingy rest in peace. May our friendship and prayers ease you through this difficult time. All the best to the family.
